СЕЛКИ
в фольклоре Великобритании морские существа, родичи шотландских роанов. Они также плавают и обличье тюленей и сбрасывают шкуру, выходя на сушу. Они очень добры, но жестоко мстят за обиды. Насылают штормы, переворачивают рыбачьи лодки, рвут сети и выпускают на волю рыбу. Чтобы позвать такое существо, нужно во время прилива сесть на камень у воды и уронить в море семь слезинок.

From Cartoon Saloon's upcoming "Song of the Sea"

Selkies are mythological creatures found in Faroese, Icelandic, Irish, and Scottish folklore. The word derives from earlier Scots selich,. Selkies are said to live as seals in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land.

A Faroese stamp depicting the capture of a seal woman Selkies (also known as silkies or selchies) are mythological creatures found in Faroese, Icelandic, Irish, and Scottish folklore. The word derives from earlier Scots selich, (from Old English seolh meaning seal). Selkies are said to live as seals in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land. The legend apparently originated on the Orkney and Shetland Islands

The Selkie are half-man and half-seal creatures, who defend seals from hunters, and raise storms. They can shed their sealskins and come ashore as proper men and women, and if you capture and hide the skin, you can marry them. However, if they find their hidden sealskin, they'll happily leave and return to the sea.

The Selkie"    According to legends of the far reaches of Ireland and Scotland, a Selkie is able to discard her seal skin and come ashore as a beautiful maiden. If a human can capture her seal skin, the selkie can be forced to become a fine, if wistful, wife. However, should she ever find her skin she immediately returns to the sea, leaving the husband to pine and die.     This is a fine art giclee reproduction of a hand colored engraving by Rachel Badeau.
